Building your own webpage to image service on web

So we have gone through a demo in my recent post on how to generate an image of a webpage using QT and java. In this post I want to announce that I have created set of RESTFul web services using Spring Framework to extend my little piece of software to a web based service. Spring MVC provides a great @nnotations support to create RESTFul Web services in minutes. You can checkout my project from GitHub.

Software as a Service

Here is the documentation of my SaaS implementation. This documentation contains all required information, from obtaining the source code to deployment. Give it a try and provide your valuable comments here.  I am sure that there can be number of interesting use of this software as a service, also if you have any idea of extending this service please make a note of it here. I do have plans to add some more functionality into this, but it just depends on resource availability :D.  


As web browsers are advanced now a days there are lots of interesting stuffs have been added into them. Recently I came to know that you can take a snapshot of a webpage using canvas object and few lines of javascript. There are already numbers of plugins available which are doing this internally. So now I think its not fruitful to send whole web page content to server to prepare the snapshot and hence I will discontinue this project. But glad to hear that there are easier ways to do stuff like this.

Added my first open source application on github

After so much of delay at last I have published my first open source application on GitHub.

As described in my previous post I have used qt-jambi to generate snapshot/thumbnail for given website using java. This application is developed in java and I have used Maven for dependency management and build tool. I will be adding several functionalities later on, as per my convenience.

I have named it SiteGraphThumbnailer have  a look @ it and provide your feedback if any.

Its opensource so you can modify it as per your requirement.
